Kingdom Hearts-Inspired Watches Now Available For Preorder

As of writing, Kingdom Hearts fans are possibly still spending their time with the most recent addition to the franchise – Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory – the rhythm spin-off which serves as a commemoration of the franchise’s music while also appears to set up the future of the franchise moving forward.

However, a new game can only satiate die-hard fans of the franchise for so long and no one knows how long it will be until Kingdom Hearts 4 will ever happen. Luckily, while no new titles have been officially revealed yet, the franchise will be getting new items in the interim such as a pair of new Kingdom Hearts-themed watches.

U-Treasure, a Japanese retailer, recently posted that preorders have been made available on its website, which comes in black and white variants. They feature the Kingdom Hearts logo on the backside of the watch face and the timepiece’s dial is designed with different iconic emblems associated with the franchise – the crown, the heart, the Keyblade, and the original Mickey Mouse icon.


The wristwatches also come with a pouch to keep them in, which also carries the franchise logo on it, and are even labeled as waterproof. They cost 27,500 yen each, which is approximately $265, and preorders are targeted to be shipped out on Christmas day.

Sadly, there appears to still be no plans to launch the watches in western countries and a search on the vendor’s website shows that, while it does offer to ship worldwide, the selection of merchandise available for international shipping is small and doesn’t include any of the Kingdom Hearts watches or any related items.

Japanese –exclusive items are nothing new but, while this news might be disappointing for some Kingdom Hearts fans, western region players aren’t being totally left out. Just recently, Kingdom Hearts 3’s official soundtrack was released on various digital streaming devices including Amazon Music, Spotify, and iTunes.


In addition, just a few days ago, it was revealed that the newest Ultimania book, which has always given comprehensive information about the game and even provided exclusive details not discussed inside the game itself, will be the first to get an official English translation and launch. However, it’s not due until next year, but it’s set to cover the entire franchise’s lore and story arc up to before Kingdom Hearts 3.

Meanwhile, fans are also anticipating seeing more Kingdom Hearts games taken to the Nintendo Switch, after director Tetsuya Nomura mentioned that he, along with his team, might provide something surprising for Nintendo fans in the future.
